Melt a quarter of a pound of granulated sugar in a spider, cook until it
is a very dark, rich brown, almost black, stir constantly. Great care
must be taken that it does not burn. When done pour over it a quart of
boiling water and let it cook until the caramel is entirely dissolved,
pour it out and when cold strain and bottle. It will keep indefinitely
and a tablespoonful will give color to a pint of liquid.
